Despite western journalists being banned from reporting in Libya, eyewitness accounts are managing to get through. One man gave his view of the situation.
Eye witness said, “ according to information from Benghazi, the people there are in control with the help of the army.It is no longer under the control of Gaddafi, even the military aircraft that were sent to bomb civilians have not carried out their orders. However, the planes have bombed two locations Fachloum Tajurah and they’ve fired on people in the streets.
The situation is serious – it’s a regime which kills its own children… we think there are ten people dead in Tajurah and between fifty and sixty in Tripoli. Young people are determined to demonstrate and they’re just waiting for the right moment.”
